I have never really wanted Mickey Mouse Ears ever. Not that they are not cute and all, but the hats look stupid on me and the headbands hurt my head. Well when I was perusing Instagram I came across Wire & Floral Mickey Mouse Ears and I fell in love with them. Most of all I knew I could DIY them myself!
So off the Youtube I went. I found a couple of videos on how to make these darling Mickey Mouse ears. This one by Jessica Journey was by far the most informational. The video is about twenty minuets long and well worth watching. Her ears are adorable and she gives you all the steps and information you need to make your own ears.
I also went to Etsy to look for more styles and most of all to check out the pricing. Well this cheap-o grandma wanted 3 pairs. One for me, one for my daughter and one for my granddaughter. The lease expensive pair I found was $20.00. Ya I can make them myself. What else I found were a few fantastic shops that had beautiful ears which gave me my inspiration. When I went back and looked at my favorite Etsy designer Mindie Mouse Shop I saw these ears.
They have a crown. I loved these even more, and I knew I could make these too. I made mine a little different than what is shown in the video. Instead of wrapping the wire around the headband itself I made one bend, hot glued it to the head band and wrapped it with coordinating ribbon.
I then just used my hot glue gun to attach the flowers to the headband. Its all pretty easy! Here are all three pairs. My daughter wanted purple, grand daughter pink, and I wanted a pretty spring mix.
If your looking for silk flowers here are a few I found, they will work perfectly for your ears.
Here are a few wire choices, I used gold but I am loving the light copper color, it looks like rose gold to me!
